We had a good visit here with two of us getting a number 13 and the other a 15. The cheese enchiladas were good and the chicken enchilada were very good. Chips and salsa were OK with good flavored salsa. Could have been a little...More

I've never been disappointed with anything I've eaten here. And I love their frozen margarita's, try the mango or raspberry, so yummy! My favorite entree is the Sweet Fajita Plate, so good! This is by far my favorite Mexican restaurant in Stillwater.
